Real Recycling for Massachusetts is a coalition of concerned citizens, businesses, and community organizations actively supporting comprehensive recycling programs that will improve recycling rates across the board.
We oppose additional taxes on grocery items in the form of an expansion to the Massachusetts Bottle Bill. Forcing families to pay even more at the store with no real impact on our environment just doesn't make economic or environmental sense.
Simply put, expanding the bottle bill to include juices, teas, sports drinks, and bottled water would create a huge expense and hassle for Massachusetts businesses and consumers alike. What's worse it won't reduce litter, landfill waste, or impact the environment in any meaningful way.
